Capital City Ballet

Yesterday, along with some other Boise Camera Club photographers, I got to photograph a dress rehearsal of the Capital City Ballet company. I've never photographed ballet before, and I've only shot dance one other time. This was basically a new experience for me. As a photographer, it's good to shoot new things, to capture new things.

Having no idea what I was doing, I spent the whole time experimenting with settings. I was hoping that some combination would result in a few good images. Take 1000, hope for 10 good ones (digital photography is a good thing).

I actually captured quite a few keepers. Starting with about 700, I deleted 250 the first time through. The second pass eliminated another 200. A third pass will identify some more trash. But I also identified about 50 images that I think turned out well.
